Railway Children

Railway Children is a non-profit organization that works to help children who are living on the streets in India, East Africa, and the UK. The organization was founded in 1995 by a group of British women who were inspired by the novel The Railway Children by E. Nesbit.

We fight for children living on the streets and provide protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to.

Railway Children works to achieve its goals through a variety of programs and services, including:

  • Outreach: Railway Children has teams of outreach workers who go out onto the streets to find children who are living on their own. The outreach workers provide food, shelter, and medical care to the children, and they help them to connect with the organization's other services.
  • Education: Railway Children runs schools and education programs for children who are living on the streets. The schools provide children with a safe place to learn, and they help them to catch up on their education.
  • Vocational training: Railway Children offers vocational training programs to help children who are living on the streets to develop skills that will help them to get jobs. The training programs include courses in carpentry, tailoring, and computer skills.
  • Reintegration: Railway Children helps children who are living on the streets to reintegrate into their families and communities. The organization provides counseling and support to families, and it helps children to find jobs and housing.

Railway Children has helped thousands of children who are living on the streets. The organization has helped children to get off the streets, to go to school, and to find jobs. Railway Children has also helped to raise awareness about the issue of child homelessness.

Railway Children is a valuable resource for children who are living on the streets. The organization provides children with the support, guidance, and opportunities they need to rebuild their lives.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
